Sick chicks abandoned.

Most important - keep them warm - first week around 90F and reduce by 5 degrees each week. They need water - if you have something like Sav-a-chik electrolyte powder that would be great, if not a little sugar water to start them off. You will need to dip their beaks in it so they get the idea. They will need chick starter food - I would suggest making a porridge consistency mash with it for them - that way they should get re-hydrated fairly quickly.
Sometimes Momma Chicken does a rotten job of being a Mom - now it's up to you!
Pasty butt can be a problem, especially if they get too hot. you need to check their bums fairly frequently, if it's pasted you will have to remove the poop. Q-tip, fingernail etc. with some mild soap and water - don't get the chick soaking wet, not good.
Once you have them warm, eating and drinking should follow quickly, please keep us posted on your progress!
